Castell Project's annual benchmark report on "Women in Hospitality Industry Leadership 2019" is now available at no charge.

Data driven companies and broad international studies show that companies with gender diverse leadership drive higher profits. A move from no female leaders to 30 percent representation is associated with a 15 percent increase in the net revenue margin, according to a study of 22,000 firms. The Castell Project appreciates the support of American Hotel & Lodging Educational Foundation, which brings this annual research project to you.
